Collision affects traffic on Resthaven Drive in Sidney

A crash involving an SUV and van on Resthaven Drive this afternoon in Sidney has emergency crews advising drivers to avoid the area, or expect delays.

The crash took place after 2 p.m. on Resthaven Drive near the marina and park, close to North Saanich Middle School.
